Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia firepot burn lawsuits
Racine, Wis.-based Real Flame has stopped distributing its Real Flame pourable gel fuel product after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated the product can unexpectedly ignite and explode when it is poured into an already-burning firepot. Real Flame pourable gel fuel products pose a dangerous risk of fire and burns to consumers that can be fatal. The experienced injury attorneys of The Cochran Firm, D.C. are actively investigating legal claims related to defective firepot and gel fuel products.
The CPSC announced the recall on Sept. 28, 2011, which applied to about 100,000 bottles of Real Flame pourable gel fuel. The product was sold in clear plastic bottles online through major retailers like Target, JC Penny, Sears, and Amazon between January 2009 and August 2011.
The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the product due to fire and burn hazards. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell Real Flame pourable gel fuel products affected by the recall.
The recall affects 29.9-ounce bottles with the model number 2164 and SKU number 752-370012641, 1-quart bottles with the model number 2164 and SKU number 752-370012641, and 29.98-ounce bottles with Citronella and model number 2165 and SKU number 752-370021658.
